NY Senate Investigations Committee Questions Health Commish on Nursing Home COVID Response

The Senate Investigations Committee questioned the Department of Health Commissioner Monday on the state’s questionable response to COVID-19 in nursing homes and inconsistencies over data. North Rockland and Orange County state senator James Skoufis, who chairs the committee, questioned Dr. Howard Zucker over how the state represents deaths in nursing homes versus in hospitals…

In March, Dr. Zucker barred nursing homes from turning away those who were coronavirus-positive. He said that didn’t bring COVID into nursing homes, noting the virus was already in them. A second hearing is scheduled for August 10th.
